2019 GEOINT Community Week Events

Nov. 18-22: Present “Intro to GEOINT” at Your Local School

USGIF is looking for volunteers to share our Intro to GEOINT presentation at your local schools during GEOINT Community Week. This is a great way to give back by helping EdGEOcate our future leaders.

We have prepared presentation materials for you that are geared toward upper elementary through lower high school grades and provide an overview of GEOINT—geography, maps, satellites, imagery, remote sensing, GIS, and careers. The presentation takes 45 minutes to one hour and is highly interactive with games, Q&A, stories, videos, and much more.

If you are interested in presenting Intro to GEOINT at your local school, please contact Christine MacKrell at by Friday, Nov. 8.
